the law. they changed the law so that only a special election could fill a vacant seat. until then, the seat would have to be empty. mitt romney tried to veto that new law. but the legislature overrode his veto, thereby stripping mitt romney of his power to choose a replacement. that became a mute point because john kerry didn't win so he stayed on as senator. but then fast forward fife years. 2009. new president barack obama, the country embroiled in a big debate over national health reform. those against it were against it to the point of rage. and those wo who wanted it were excited to be on the cusp of achieving something they had failed to achieve for decades. at the time the democrat hs a majority in the united states senate, 60 seats is a filibuster super majority. that's enough to pass health reform. that majority for the democrats included senator ted kennedy. senator kennedy spent his career trying to pass health reform. it was his life's work. he had done it at the state level with that guy, mitt romney. he had led on the issue nationally for decades. it was his signatur

, the state's former republican chairman greer claims they passed a law that was designed to squelch turnout and give the election to mitt romney. it made it harder for voters who moved to actually cast ballots. the republican party of florida has responded and tell "outfront," i want to quote them here, jim greer's quotes are false and details keep changing. great to have both of you. roland, let me start with you. these accusations come from jim greer, former boss of the party. he is accused of stealing money from the party. accusations come from charlie crist who abandoned the party to run as an independent. all that context is important. are these claims credible, though? >> for two years i've been blasting these efforts in florida as outright voter suppression and it is no shock to me that you're actually hearing this. it goes beyond just shortening early voting days. remember, they got rid of voting on sunday. now, in a country where you want more people voting, why would you take away a day when people would say, hey, no need to go to the polls tuesday, i can actually vote on that par
of next year that is built into the current law, the so-called fiscal clef. the automatic tax increases and spending cuts that make up the fiscal cliff absent of offsetting changes proposes a substantial threat to the recovery. indeed by the reckoning of the congressional budget office, the cbo, and that of many outside observers, a fiscal shock of that size would send the economy toppling back into the recession. second, early in the new year it will be necessary to improve and increase in the federal and debt limit to avoid any possibility of a catastrophic default on the nation's treasury securities and other obligations. as you recall the threat of default in the summer of 2011 fueled the economic uncertainty even though an agreement was ultimately reached. the failure to reach an agreement this time around can impose an even heavier economic and financial cost. as the fiscal policy makers face these decisions with the two objectives in mind, first as i think it is widely appreciated by now, the federal budget is on an unsustainable path. the budget deficit which peaked at about 10%
constitutional law. host: does fighting cyber crime violate the law? caller: the bill that is actually being passed to create cyber police or cyber security -- this deal that created violates the constitutional laws. host: we have a couple of bills on the table, but we also seeing the white house. we mentioned that the president has asked for the military to act more aggressively. guest: obviously, i do not have all of the details on this particular bill because it is classified. however, i can tell you, have spent nine years until the military. i have been a part of a lot of operations. in every case, the legal opinion was always an issue that was never passed over to ensure that not just u.s. citizens' rights were in storage but also the rights of the international. i cannot comment on the bill. i have not seen it. i can tell the historically i have never come across a situation where the law was something that was ignored. host: the reason you have not seen it is because it is a secret directive that this point. "the washington post" goes on to say -- give us a sense of how the government
alternatives for healing. these four men and the southern poverty law center which is representing them claim the center falsely offered cures and used tactics that sound less like therapy and more like mental torture. things like being made to undergo individual and group sessions in the nude. being made to cuddle other same sex clients and counselors. being made to beat an effigy of one's mother. go to gyms and bath houses in order to be nude, the lawsuit claims, with father figures. being subject, the suit also claims, to ridicule, and i'm quoting the complaint here, as homos and other anti-gay slurs that start with the letter f but is too offensive to repeat here. sounds a lot like bullying, doesn't it? experts say it amounts to quack science. this from the american psychiatric association. i'm quoting now. in the last four decades, reparative therapists have not produced any rigorous scientific research to substantiate their claims of cure. until there is such research available, the apa recommends that ethical practitioners refrain from attempts to change individuals' sexual orientation
insurance coverage, contraception, as you know, can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. for a lot of students, who like me are on public interest scholarships, that's practically an entire summer's salary. 40% of the female students at georgetown law reported to us that they struggled financially as a result of this policy. >> sean: believe it or not, those are the words of somebody that "time" magazine is now considering as person of the year? you heard it right. the failing magazine is now elevating former georgetown law student sandra fluke to the same level as winston churchill, pope john ii, and more. here to explain how advocating for publicly-funded birth control qualifies fluke as the person of the year. good to see you. thanks for being with us. >> great to be here. >> sean: marjorie, it's $9 a month at wal-mart to get birth control pills. you can get all the condoms you want. in new york city, at a bar, they're free. just take a handful on your way out. planned parenthood, too. do you think she should be woman of the year? >> the reason that sandra fluke represents what
a new phase of passive acceptance. since california passed the first medical marijuana law, 18 states and the district of columbia permit it for medicinal use. rhode island and maine are the next states looking to legalize the drug. the movement reflects an increasing acceptance. half of all americans support legalizing it, up from 31% in 2001. what are the implications regarding legalization both at home and south of the border? and are the new laws in washington and colorado a game changer in mexican-american relations. for the current issue of "new york" magazine benjamin wallace-wells pens the title "the end of prohibition" he argues u.s. drug policy has shifted, quote, without really acknowledging it, we are beginning to experiment with a negotiated surrender. benjamin, there are many people i know not naming names who would like to see the white flag waved on the war on drugs. i will point you to a "washington post" editorial yesterday that talks about decriminalization but warns it is not yet clear how a quasi legal pot industry might operate in colorado and waugs or what its p
was banned. one of his goals is to create a state ruled by islamic or sharia laws. the u.s. does not consider the muslim brotherhood a foreign terrorist organization. the egyptian government banned the muslim brotherhood because of its suspected role in the assassination plot of the president. bill: later this hour general jack keane is here to talk about the recent turmoil in egypt and claims morsi is a new kind of pharaoh for egypt. martha: twin car bombs in damascus, syria, the blast targeted an area known to be loyal to president bashar al-asaad. then people ran out to help those who were injured in that initial explosion and then came the second large explosion. according to the estimates. 40,000 syrians have died in all of this horrific violence in syria that has been going on now for two years. bill: we are just getting started. $2 and a dream. so many lining unto buy a ticket for one of the largest lottery jackpots we have ever seen. we'll take you to one town where folks to sure use a half billion prize. martha: ambassador susan rise expected on capitol hill. she faced a tough crowd
? law students released a report explaining how the idea for banning gay marriage in the constitution could have broad, unintended consequences for more than 600 other laws already on the books in that state. it's funny. if you listen to the beltway talk about what's going on in american politics, the major narrative about what's going on is about the sort of course correction happening in the republican party. the republican party has learned its lesson. if only in the interest of self-preservation, republicans are giving up on these policy stances that cost them so much in the last election that made their party seem pre-modern. all of the stuff that alienated young people, women, gay people, if you listen to the beltway media, the course correction on this problem post-election is totally underway. >> we didn't sell a positive vision. we didn't explain to people what we're for. >> we have to show we're serious about reaching out and helping everyone. everyone in this country to live their peace and the american dream. >> it's one thing to shoot yourself in the foot. just don't relo
you go. >> the senate has already passed a law like this. democrats in the house are ready to pass a law like this. i hope republicans in the house come on board too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. we should at least do what we agree on. and that's to keep middle class taxes low. and i'll bring everyone in to sign it right away so we can give folks some certainty before the holiday season. >> the white house point of view and which they feel is reflected in representative cole's position there is that it is very clear that they're in the going to -- neither side is going to let taxes go up on all americans. and so why not just cut a deal on letting those tax cuts be locked in for lower income americans and work out what they're going to do about the upper income americans. house republicans say, come on, you know where we stand on this, we're not going to change overnight because you won re-election, mr. president. we need to negotiate on some of the other big issues before anybody discusses those top tax rates. >> i know you s
the earlier pretrial containment was against the law. >>> the 17-year-old accused of killing 10-year-old neighbor jessica ridgeway will be charged as an adult. police say he turned himself in an confessed to murder two weeks after the girl's remains were found in colorado. >>> a woman accused of stalking alec baldwin rearrested. the attorney filed a question to withdraw from her case saying she wouldn't follow his advice or pay his legal fees. jenna: time is running out to get your ticket. the powerball lottery holding their drawing for the record breaking $500 million jackpot. certainly for folks hit by superstorm sandy that money would go a long way towards recovery. rick leventhal is live from pop's wines and liquors in island park, new york, one of the areas affected by this storm. rick? >> reporter: this storm store was actually shut down a couple days after hurricane sandy and lost its lottery machine. didn't get a new one until last friday. we may have found one of the few stores in this region without a line. no waiting if you want to come to -- there is one gentleman buying
laws and the president signed them and so on. then by about march or april of the election year things started to get pretty partisan and for the remainder of the year it was hard to get things done that weren't pretty non-partisan because both sides were trying to hold the other in a political way to some kind of disadvantage. we've now taken that to almost beginning the week after the election for a total period of two years. so both parties are trying to set the other party up to make political mistakes and be criticized politically. media plays along with it because it makes good news. i don't know what the answer to that is he but i think that's part of the reason why it's been much more difficult for congress to get things accomplished. >> do you remember good old days? >> i'll give you two good old days, 2007, 2008 because i disagree with this. tell the voters if you don't like these people, why did you vote for them? this effort to analyze this out of the context of the democracy, in part i agree with john. the way our media is configured the most activist elements on the left
of florida's republican party, he's making a stunning claim about the state's early voting law saying it was deliberately designed to suppress minority votes. it's just one of the things we thought you should know. join our conversation on twitter. you can find us at @tamronhall and at @newsnation. a winter wonderland doesn't just happen. it takes some doing. some coordinating. and a trip to the one place with the new ideas that help us pull it all together. from the things that hang and shine... ...to the things that sparkle and jingle. all while saving the things that go in our wallet. more saving. more doing. that's the power of the home depot. get fresh cut savings. live trees are arriving weekly. now's a good time to think about your options. are you looking for a plan that really meets your needs? and your budget? as you probably know, medicare only covers about 80% of your part b medical expenses. the rest is up to you. so consider an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. like all standardized medicare supplement plans, they pic

show. a question about the law that requires ethanol to be used in a motor fuel when there is new technology from a corporation that uses coal or natural gas to make ethanol at approximately half the cost of the current corn-based program without any government subsidy. wouldn't that make sense? guest: there are different forms of renewable energy that is out there. you talk about corn-based ethanol. a fuel standard that was created it is not workable. there was a petition saying it is driving up the cost of food and feed for cattle because of drought in the midwest and we should with that requirement. we believe the current law is unworkable and needs to be changed. we will be working with the congress to get back to a more free-market approach as it relates to forms of energy. we shouldn't pick winners or losers. the government should not pick a particular company or technology. let the market drive those. new technologies will emerge because the market will incentivize those, or to add to the mix. host: here is seadog on twitter. guest: we have a number of fleets have moved to
, employers can't skirt labor laws said they have to pay fair wages and abide the rules. immigration reform is the right thing to do as well as the economically smart thing to do. children should not have to live in fear of their parents deportation every day of their lives and some of the hardest working and most honorable people in our society should not have to be subject to exploitation and harassment. finally, i would just like to say that i'm truly appreciative of the support we have received from the urban league and other african-american leaders on this issue. i know that there've been tensions in the past, but i believe like the reverend dr. martin luther king jr. that when we have this tensions we have to embrace them so we can get past them. this is our time to come together, break issues down. let's get a solution on this issue because i know when we come together we can figure this out. i had the privilege of march and most recently this year in the annual march from selma mike on my end for us to montgomery and alabama it was an incredible feeling. there i was with congressma
. these are people who think the president has overstepped himself by declaring his acts above the law and above the courts and they're calling for him to come down. the chants of violence in the crowd this loud, this angry in a country that is divided is certainly high. much of the violence now is to s around the main section of the crowd. that is where the younger protesters are scuffling with police. in an effort to reduce the chance of violence the president's supporters from the muslim brotherhood canceled a march to keep one side away from the other. martha? martha: this is so remarkable. we saw the scenes when hosni mubarak was thrown out of office. then there was the election and democracy supposedly that put president morsi in place. we have the same crowds back into the square and they're protesting again. he made some moves to try to quell all of this and compromise a bit. were they meaningful though, steve? >> reporter: certainly we are seeing exactly the same scenes, sometimes exactly the same chants that were used against hosni mubarak now being used against the new egyptian presid
government rules or a law against this. i think we need more community action. host: we will stick with this conversation for another 15 minutes, but i need to give you some other news in the papers. usa today, the front-page story, looking at the housing market. and in the financial times -- overseas, here's the world section of the washington post -- this was after a report of possible poisoning reviving suspicions abound his debts. and president obama meeting yesterday with mexico's new president who will take over on saturday, meeting at the white house. try to boost relations between the detonations. and the front-page of the washington times, but it's in many of the papers this morning, angry protesters filling tahrir square in cairo. they're stepping up pressure for their president to rescind a decree that they say threaten the nation with a new era of autocracy. there's the picture on the front page of the washington times. we will be talking about this on sunday on the washington journal. back to the phone calls. john in san jose, california, independent. caller: thanks so
university law professor. likely to make at least one appointment in his second term. for justices, they are in their 70s, justice ginsburg with to po tenial she could retire being she is 79 years old. who would be the key, you think, to being replaced first, though? >> yeah. so i don't think that we can go solely on the ages because the ages are only a weak proxy. marty ginsburg, justice gips burg's late husband, how frail is a justice, she can do 25 push-ups, how many can you do? she wants to stay on at least as long as her hero, justin brandeis, a few years from now. >> who would be the next logical person looking to get off the bench? >> the next person who might get off the bench, it could be scalia, kennedy. i think they'll be hanging on with their fingernails to wait out this administration. and justice breyer, of course, is 74. so you have two people who are 76 and 74 underneath that. >> appointing a justice to the supreme court has always been seen as a history-changing moment for any president to do so. but in this case, does the president care wholeheartedly about changi
in defense attorney and law professor joey jackson. joey, you know, on the surface this sounds big. almost unbelievable. >> huge. >> how could they have missed this, but i guess the question is if it hadn't been missed, if they had found this, if the prosecution had this in their hands, would it have changed the outcome? >> i think this is what we call outcome determinetive. how powerful would it have been for the prosecution to have evidence the day she went missing of a search that said "fool proof suffocation." i think it's a game changer. it's a huge miss on their part. even more importantly, the defense had this. how could the prosecution not? >> that's right. defense attorney jose baez said he knew about this all along and was actually waiting for it to come up. >> it never did. exactly. so interestingly enough, the question is asked, well, you ho could a defense attorney do that? don't we share information? the answer is yes but no, but here's what i mean. there's an obligation for what we call reciprocal discovery. if i have information, i have to give it to the prosecution so they
of law. the agreement and the private market competition it launched help spur in the years that followed trillions of dollars in new investment, in infrastructure, in telecommunications around the world, and help spur a huge certainly unprecedented wave of worldwide telecommunication technology innovation, mobile and internet. global access to communications service rose in the years following that agreement, especially for mobile services in developing countries that took the opportunity to leapfrog past wired networks. between 2001-2011, mobile phone adoption increased globally from 15% to 86%, one decade. from roughly 900 million people around the world having basic mobile service to 6 billion, in a decade. now, the u.s. benefit from this global growth, u.s. export in information and communication technology services quadrupled over that decade. and as a global market continues to grow as we get those new metrics that i described, mobile broadband access went from one to 5 billion, the u.s. economy will continue to benefit. but given his history and the fortune seat as a junior staffe
there are protections legally when it comes to minors, but these kids weren't actually breaking the law, they were just demonstrating some really awful speech and really reflecting in sid u us thought process. they need to learn, everybody needs to learn there's no divide between real life and online. what you say online is just as important as what you say in real life. so i don't think it matters what actually happens to the kids at the schools per se. we're not acting as judges or juries, our responsibility is just to the story. >> but again, the stuff was just awful, some of it i can't repeat on the air. >> absolutely. >> some of these kids are 15, 16, 17, some repeating what they heard their parents say. >> but they're old enough tto know exactly what they're saying. i don't care if you're 15 or 16, i think no one would disagree that those kids didn'n't know wt they were saying. they were expressing dissatisfaction with the election, they were upset that barack obama was president. they knew they were using negative, offensive words to express their disappointment. >> but didn't think anybody outs
lawmakers will interviews a new voter i.d. law. in ohio, they are limiting abortion rights and defund planned parenthood. new anti-abortion rights are coming in wisconsin as well, where the state's governor, scott walker, also wants to scale back voting registration. >> states across the nation have real problems because the vast majority have poll workers who are working 12 hour days and most are retirees and it's difficult for them to handle the folks that come at the last minute. it would be much better if it was done in advance of election day. >> better for who? republicans? what are these people doing? voter suppression that alienates minorities, that alienates women. this is the kind of thing that led to losing the election. senator john mccain went on fox news yesterday. and while he didn't say much that i agreed with, he did say this. >> there is no doubt what so oh ever that the demographics are not on our side and we are going to have to give a much more positive agenda. and as far as young women are concerned, i don't think anybody like me, i can state my position on abort
and your tax cut will be higher. but congress can change the tax law. remember, the republicans themselves did this when they raised taxes on teenagers who work six years ago. so the immediate effect is less than the boogeyman effect. the thing to watch for is do the democrats and president obama hold firm or do they betray the people who put them in office? >> would it be a betrayal at this point, do you think? >> if we come up with a gimmick that really makes the tax burden not fall on the very wealthiest of people. but on upper middle class americans and middle class americans, that would be something of a betrayal, yes. >> what does this do to republican's credibility on the economy? after they have gone through this era of obstruction, they have talked down the economy and then numbers like this come up, you'd think they'd be concerned about that. >> what they are trying to do here, ed, is if they are unable to get their own troops in line to make a deal, if they are going to pledge more allegiance to grover norquist than to
wearing? let's talk about this controversial law in florida. we talked about it before in the trayvon martin case. it's the stand your ground gun law. might be put to the test again this time. this time a murder suspect claims that he was threatened but there are lots of questions. michael dunn's attorney says he asked four african-american teenagers in an suv to turn their loud music at a jacksonville gas station, says they hurled insults at him, then flashed a shotgun, and then dunn decided to defend himself, he shot into the suv eight or nine times. 17-year-old jordan davis was hit twice and killed. martin savidge is following those developments from our headquarters in atlanta this morning. good morning, martin. >> good morning, soledad. the latest, by the way, is the fact that there's going to be a memorial service for that 17-year-old youth that's going to take place in florida tonight. meanwhile, the shooter in that case, that's 45-year-old michael dunn, he was arrested on saturday, had his first court appearance on monday. he entered a plea of not guilty to the charge of murde
